Congratulations! How did this role came to you?
My show (Kuch Rang Pyaar Ke Aise Bhi) recently went off air, and I guess my performance in it was noticed. Perhaps it showed my conviction, and that was enough for me to land this one (laughs).

Were you thrilled while signing the show?
Yes, I was thrilled and excited but at the same time there was and is a little pressure. It is a huge show and from my end I will try my level best to live up to the expectations.

Kasautii Zindagii Kay’s promo has created a lot of buzz...
An original will always remain an original. We aren’t trying to replace it, we are bringing it back. It will be relevant to today’s day and age. And I am glad that people are as excited as we all are.

Have you watched Kasautii in your childhood?
Yes, of course, this was one of the many K series shows that I grew up watching. And little did I know then that I would be a part of it in the near future.

Did you take any inspiration from Prerna(Shweta Tiwari)’s character?
Well, we both are different actors and there might be a difference in the way we portray one character. But yes, I did my basic homework on Prerna.

How much was Ekta Kapoor’s involvement in your character, and in the show?
She is completely involved in the show, and she has all the reason to be. This show has been very dear to her.

She kind of started with it, in a way. This and a few other shows made her so successful, and a name to reckon with. The show was like her baby and now that we are coming back with it, you can imagine the level of excitement from her end.

From what I see and know of her, she is diligent, a perfectionist and a visionary and definitely wants everything done perfectly.

Any message for your fans who are looking forward to your comeback with such a grand show?
Thank you! Thanks for showering me with your love and well wishes, we are going to give it our all to make this one a memorable show for you. So please do continue to support us and be with us as we begin this wonderful journey together.
